Timing is Everything or Is It? Hillary Enters Race
On January 20th Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton followed Sen. Barack Obama and joined a crowed race for president. At 6:01AM EST Sun ingressed into Aquarius the sign of surprises and the voice of the man on the street or at least the voice of democracy.
It was no real shocker that Hillary, who currently has around 17,000 websites devoted to either hating or loving her would run for the 2008 electoral campaign.
Mother Jones magazine in an excellent piece entitled: Harpy, Hero, Heretic: Hillary which deconstructs then resculpts the former first lady. When I look at her natal chart above, it is that prominent Mars in dignified Scorpio the sign of morph and transform on the Ascendant that catches my attention. I am struck by a caught from Sharon Stone: "a woman should be past her sexuality when she runs. Hillary still has sexual power, and I don't think people will accept that. It's too threatening." Yes with Mars in Scorpio and sad, moon close by she has a dynamic influence to say the least, more like an immediate reaction. We are talking about the reaction that can border on obsessive, anger.
One thing is for sure announcing her candidacy when Sun-Mercury-Moon-Neptune-Venus are all in electric Aquarius was a publicist dream. The impact of a social, people oriented sign in the 3rd house of communication- Wow. Plus all these planets except Neptune will be moving into her 4th house of children, family, tribe and reflect foundations or base of the society and its traditions - It Takes a Village. Her campaign manager(s) also are sure to have lots of photo-ops with little children to embelish or is it play down her Pluto-Saturn conjunction in the 9th (politcal power). The more warm and fuzzy she can appear her natal inconjunct with Moon-Mars in Scorp. to Uranus-Gemini @ 21*27'- this combo can either require a strenuous adjustment or add power to any move.
One of the crucial times for Mrs. Rodham will be around February 28th when Neptune-Saturn make their exact opposition again this time at 20* 14 Aquarius-Leo to TSQ her Moon in secretive Scorpio. In poetic tones, the description of the Sabian Symbol for this degree in Aquarius is ironic: "Staring into her dressing-room mirror, a torch singer reflects sadly on her broken romance. When her lover knocks on the door, she asks her maid to send him away." The end of February and early March 2007 will be a difficult time for Hillary to face herself and reconcile her projected image with her deeper self.
